Soon I shall upgrade from my beloved system (shown in tag). I will be hopping onto the upgrade train and thats what Im getting. How well would that system do in Oblivion? Tis my favourite game that :)

Later, I will add another 512MB module and make 1GB. And again, how would THAT do?

Your advice on this will be appreciated, thankyou.

You'll be fine except for the RAM. Because with a fancy pants graphics card and CPU, you'll be putting the details up - and that means textures go up.

512MB will be taken down to a realistic 300MB or less thanks to Windows, so I think you'll be cutting yourself short. I'd reccommend getting the 1GB as soon as ya can. Oblivion on high settings with 1GB of RAM gives me sliiiight stuttering when I load new areas. I think its one of the few games that appreciate over a gig of RAM.
